Driving (awaiting license) after disqualification for DD


New member
I was disqualified until 7th May under DR10 code. I was sent a renewal form by the DVLA in March, and returned it with the fee. On the DVLA website, it says that I can now apply to renew my license, but it says I have no entitlement to drive. I have applied by post twice now, but not heard anything. I totally understand that with CoVid, they are not operating a full staff - but I can't get hold of them, nor an answer to a call or email. I just wondered where I stand with being able to drive when I have no license.
